Changes to the labeling for Euflexxa (1% sodium hyaluronate, Ferring Pharmaceuticals), a treatment for the pain associated with osteoarthritis, have been approved by the FDA. The product can now be stored at room temperature, as well as refrigerated. The new labeling will make it easier for physicians to store the drug and keep it available for patients, according to the company. The highly purified hyaluronan product is a non-avian-derived hyaluronic acid that is administered as a three-injection treatment regimen for patients who have failed to adequately respond to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics.
